Woking vs Wokingham

Brilliance from Ballard and Mott as Wokingham seal another impressive win

This wet and windy affair saw these two local teams meet for the fourth time this season. But it was the weather conditions who had the upper hand from the start, both teams struggling to get a hold of the game in the opening stages.

Although Wokingham were unable to string a series of passes together, they looked the better side in the remaining minutes of the first half. Mott tested the keeper from long range on a number of occasions and down the other end Lewens was quick off his line and started the attacks with confidence.

The only goal of the half came in the 24th minute when a Wokingham corner found Mott with the ball at his feet towards the back post. He calmly hammered it home into the top corner to give the visitors the advantage.

As the game opened up in the second half, Ballard started to enjoy the space he kept finding in the centre of the park. A great breakaway was thumped home off the post by Ballard – 0:2 to Wokingham.

The icing seemed to be on the cake when Mott and Ballard both collected a double to make it 4-0 in a matter of minutes. Woking continued to fight though and hit back through a looping header off a set piece.

The home side kept knocking at the door and after a injury to Lewens the Wokingham defence were all over the place. Woking took advantage and slotted in another.

From there on in the game continued as an end to end duel but it was Wokingham who once again came away as victors. The score, 2-4.
